ASTRA - The Black ChordMeddle-era ‘Floyd supercharged by a Mahavishnu-intensity!
Format: CD / Cat No: RISECD137 / Released: 16/04/2012

More information: Much anticipated second album from this hotly tipped progressive rock band. Like a Meddle-era ‘Floyd supercharged by a Mahavishnu-intensity! This is an album of blinding light and abysmal shade, of bone-jarring rhythmic density and vast, breathtaking mental vistas. This is a record at home in 1972 as it is in 2012. Think wailing guitars and dulcet harmonies thickened by Mellotrons and given hypnotic qualities by the kind of drumming that borders on the shamanic. Cinematic in scope but frequently yielding to a kind of melodic fragility that can only be the product of genuine emotion.
